Late Night Shopping Stuttgart

Aug 17th

Stuttgart's Palace Square is the vibrant heart of the city, but at the same time it's a place to linger, within easy walking distance of many of the city's attractions. Palace Square is therefore Stuttgart's hub and an integral part of any stroll through town. In 2006 pictures of Palace Square went round the world, when 60 000 fans turned it into a sea of black, red and gold flags at the public screenings during the football World Cup. Stuttgart's Palace Square is a place both to celebrate and relax. Open-air concerts are held here at regular intervals against the backdrop of the New Palace and at the beginning of August Stuttgart's Summer Festival transforms Palace Square and the Upper Palace Gardens into a gaily lit, elegant promenade. Originally part of the ducal pleasure garden, the square served as a military drill and parade ground from 1746 onwards. It was not until the middle of the 19th century that it became a Baroque park that could also be used by the townspeople. In the middle of Palace Square towers the Jubilee Column , surmounted by Condordia, goddess of harmony. Behind her is the New Palace, whose architecture, thanks to its lengthy construction period from 1746 to 1807, is a mixture of Baroque, Classicism, Rococo and Empire. Up until the second half of the 19th century, this was the royal residence of the kings of Württemberg. Today, the palace contains ministries of the Baden-Württemberg state government and state reception rooms. The Old Palace was originally the seat of the first counts and dukes of Württemberg. It is now home to the Württemberg State Museum. Each year its inner courtyard is the setting for the official opening of the Stuttgart Wine Village and the Christmas Market. The Museum of Art, a 27-m-high glass cube, is no less of an eye-catcher at night, when it sets the concrete core of its interior aglow, radiating light into Palace Square. The museum's collection comprises over 15 000 works of art from the late 18th century up to the present day. Diagonally opposite is the Kunstgebäude gallery, its cupola surmounted by a golden stag, where regular exhibitions of contemporary art are staged by the Württemberg Art Association. The original building was destroyed in WW II and rebuilt to plans by the architect Paul Bonatz, who also designed the main railway station. Between the Kunstgebäude and the New Palace are the Upper Palace Gardens. Here, a sombre structure with a steel skeleton frame catches the eye: the Landtag, seat of Baden- Württemberg's parliament. Built in the 1950s, it was purposely designed in a style that would not detract from the classical architecture of the Opera House and State Theatre. If you prefer shopping to culture, you'll be in your element in Königstraße, Germany's longest shopping precinct, which takes you past Palace Square and also the Königsbau, Stuttgart's oldest shopping arcade.

Some parking blocks are closed during late night, providing no way of getting your car out. The street layout and numerous tunnels in Stuttgart can be confusing for tourists. Driving by car is not recommended.

The city lies in a basin of a hilly region the Stuttgarters call “Kessel”, literally “cauldron”, and between the lowest part of the city and the highest part of the city are 250 meter of altitude. There is a lot of car traffic, and routes for bikes are not well developed. Biking in the outlying areas of Stuttgart, e.g. in the Neckar Valley or the Schönbuch (just south of the city) is very nice. Stuttgart is one of the greenest urban areas in Europe. There are many paths through the surrounding forests which are in very good shape.

On the outskirts of Stuttgart, in Möhringen, there is a hotel/conference/entertainment complex called the SI Centrum. A lot of foreigners stay here. This complex includes a theater for Broadway shows, the Millennium hotel, and a spacious underground complex that houses many conference rooms, bars and restaurants. It’s a very nice place to stay and although it’s one of the best hotels in Stuttgart, it’s not that expensive. Plus there’s a Stadtbahn stop right behind the hotel so you can explore easily.

An hour to the south is Triberg, a beautiful old village in the heart of the black forest which specializes in grandfather and cuckoo clocks. There is also a hiking trail which parallels a stream there. An hour to an hour and a half west from Stuttgart is Strasbourg, France. It is a small but beautiful city and possibly the most charming in France!

Stuttgart used to be an impressive town but was heavily damaged during World War II and only few buildings were rebuilt to classical elegance. The 50’s still were post-war, in the 60’s and 70’s architectural things didn’t matter at all and in the 80’s and 90’s with major insurance companies and banks building monuments of bad taste in the inner city, the aesthetic situation wasn’t really improving.
